An insider's guide: how to join the Roman legions, wield a gladius, storm cities, and conquer the world Your emperor needs you for the Roman army! The year is AD 100 and Rome stands supreme and unconquerable from the desert sands of Mesopotamia to the misty highlands of Caledonia. Yet the might of Rome rests completely on the armored shoulders of the legionaries who hold back the barbarian hordes and push forward the frontiers of empire. This carefully researched yet entertainingly nonacademic book tells you how to join the Roman legions, the best places to serve, and how to keep your armor from getting rusty. Learn to march under the eagles of Rome, from training, campaigns, and battle to the glory of a Roman Triumph and retirement with a pension plan. Every aspect of army life is discussed, from drill to diet, with handy tips on topics such as how to select the best boots or how to avoid being skewered by enemy spears. Combining the latest archaeological discoveries with the written records of those who actually saw the Roman legions in action, this book provides a vivid picture of what it meant to be a Roman legionary.… (mere)

A very fun book. Not the most "in depth" look into the legions, but that doesn't seem to be the point. The author has a good sense of humor and the book is engaging. ( )

A breezy manual dedicated to the new recruit, to help him into his twenty year enlistment with minimal fuss. A lot of information derived from archaeology and literary research, and well worth the effort, if you wish to sympathize with the other ranks of the fearsome military assemblage. ( )

Accessible, informative, and amusing. This was a good read.

A very readable look at the life of the Roman soldier, from enlistment to retirement, training to battle, and all the little details in between. My knowledge of Roman history is spotty, but the author provides enough context that I'm not lost. (And many of the quotations suggest that soldiers are the same, whatever the era....) ( )

Matyszak hits the nail on the head again. I haven't read one of his books that I didn't like. This one is, like the others, well-researched, packed with facts, funny and fun to read -- a good book for trying to get people to like history. I do believe he has become one of my favorite nonfiction writers. ( )
